LANEY R500-115 – PRESS RELEASE

LANEY R500-115   JANUARY 2017: Laney proudly introduces a brand-new bass combo amplifier. The Laney R500-115 is a solid-state combo packing an impressive 500W RMS into a sealed cabinet with a range of bass-friendly controls and variables.
Designed and engineered in the UK, the R500-115 calls on Laney’s 50-year history of bass amp building to provide versatility, portability and reliability to all levels of bass player from rehearsal room to large stage.


POWER AND PORTABILITY
At 23.6kg (52lbs), the R500-115 houses Laney’s brand new ‘R500’ amplifier in portable combo format, loaded with a 15” custom-design speaker plus high frequency horn. Capable of a real 500 watts RMS power, the R500-115 delivers results that stand well-ahead of the competitors in its price bracket.  
OWN YOUR TONE
The R500-115 combines flexible tone-shaping with simple interface: Set between conventional Bass and Treble controls is a 10-band Graphic EQ featuring a wide range from 30Hz to 8KHz. This 10 band EQ can also be switched in remotely using a Laney FS1 or FS1-MINI footswitch (sold separately). This is also coupled with Laney’s unique ‘Enhance’ control that dials in increased low-end definition from a single turn, plus a selectable on-board compressor. The R500-115 lets any bass player own their tone!
CONNECTIVITY
An array of bass player-friendly connections is straight at hand: Normal or High jack inputs can be selected depending on the output of the bass used. A balanced XLR D.I. provides direct, mic-free mixer connection when recording or performing live. An Aux input allows play-along to a backing track. A headphone socket allows secluded listening to your sounds when the need arises. An FX loop allows connection of external effects.
The R500-115 is fitted with Speakon connectors to the rear panel, giving secure and safe connectivity to your chosen cabinets. Paired with the new Laney R410 and/or R115 speaker cabinets, makes for the perfect extension when needed in those larger performances.
